ECS Z170 Claymore Motherboard Review
     Thu, Nov 12 2015 | 3:09P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year, it was reported that Elitegroup Computer System (ECS) was no longer going to market its own branded motherboards, instead they were going to focus on OEM motherboards. While OEM system builds has been ECS’s main focus for many years, they have released products for the DIY crowd, with high end features while keeping the price down. With increased pressure from the top tier motherboard manufacturers, these budget minded motherboards often get overlooked. However, if you look at the features ECS builds into their motherboards, these budget boards are sometimes a great option. Take for example, the ECS Z170 Claymore motherboard, here we have a motherboard designed for the latest Intel Skylake processors, that integrates some of the latest technology. This motherboard includes support for the latest technology that the Intel Z170 chipset permits; DDR4 memory, PCIe Gen 3, M.2, USB 3.1 and overclocking support.
